Mystery bar number 16

File under: , ,

This place is perhaps better known as a restaurant, though it has a separate bar area and is happy to serve drinks without food. It's also known for views, though the bar itself is tucked away around a corner where it's difficult to see much. While it's definitely upmarket, there's a stilted, dated feel to the decor, which is very reminiscent of an early 90s hotel lobby.

Nevertheless, the bar staff are pleasant and competent, though our orders (a glass of Riesling and a G&T) were hardly taxing. If the weather had been less blustery we'd definitely have chosen to sit outside, as many of the punters were doing despite the aggressive northwesterly. Instead, we sat at our bar stools and looked into the deep blue glow of the backlit bottles behind the bar. Now that's a view.

Nope, but it is pretty close to water.
